    socket 1156 cooler

    Can some kind person recomend a good socket 1156 cooler that also incorporates an 120mm fan? I can see there are loads of heatsinks on the market but it is so hard to decide!!

    I have looked at Frostytech but still confused.

    I remember when Thermalright used to be 'the' name but not sure these days!

    For a socket 1156 try the Gelid Tranquilo, cheap and quiet. Costs £23.99 at Scan.

    I'm in the same boat psu1. I want to overclock my i5-750 and have narrowed it down to the Titan Fenrir, Thermalright ultra 120 extreme and Coolermaster mux-120, all very good performers

    The MUX is thermalright the hyper 212 plus is probably the CM one you're thinking about.
    And it's probably the single best low cost cooler option. (£18 from play.com)
